Fairy tale of New York. This is the official version of the Pogue’s song. (Not the BBC’s edited one.)
The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing ‘Galway Bay’
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas Day
Happy Christmas everyone!
The pawprints are by nomnomicons. They remind me of Elizabeth Coatsworth’s poem On a Night of Snow : https://www.poetrybyheart.org.uk/poems/on-a-night-of-snow/
It’s an odd kind of white Christmas here – heavy frost but no snow. Pretty, but extremely cold!
